    (1) THIS book is intended for students of electrical engineering. Although much of the ground has been covered in a similar way before, yet there are several novel features. The magnetic circuit—the importance of the theory of which in electrical engineering can scarcely be over-estimated—is allotted the space it deserves. The electron theory, which is admirably adapted for giving easily intelligible explanations, is freely used. Thermionic emission, conduction through gases, and electrolytic conduction are all discussed. There are also about 500 practical problems, some of which give interesting engineering data.
